[edit] Location

Inside the fenced area of the Maisach military airport in Munich's West, roughly 1 km South of the Gernlinden S-Bahn station. The exact coordinates were just off the runway and close to the touch-down zone at its East end (the piano keys).

OMG OMG OMG! Friday is soooo gonna be POSTED! There's no way a military airport will not be labeled "No Trespassing". The spot is right next to the piano keys of the rwy. Anyone going? --Zb 21:28, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

I'm not going to either hashpoint, but I find it interesting that Friday's 49 12 is also in the vicinity of an airportstrip :) --dawidi 23:29, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Expedition

For weird reasons no one knows, I didn't see any signs about restricted areas or forbidden trespassing posted on or around the airport fence. One of the reasons might be that it was still very dark when I went. I had figured I wouldn't want to go after work because it would be completely dark so I decided that I wanted to do the walk with at least a little light in the early morning during the hour before sunrise, arriving in Gernlinden at 6:05 am and heading on to work in the 48/10 graticule on another train an hour later. It seemed like it was the first morning of the year with frost on the ground. And on other things like electric wires: All the trains had really bright and loud electric arcs on the pantographs when they were moving; a fascinating display I hadn't seen since last winter.

  • Nautical twilight started at 05:56, just before I got off the train. The sky in the North-East just started to show some first signs of daylight when I started the walk.
  • Civil twilight started at 06:33, when things around the airport fence just became visible.
  • Sunrise was at 7:06 when I was already back on the train.

The geohash, like some earlier ones along the route of my commute, was a great routine-killer.
